1964 Ford Galaxie 500

'64 Ford Galaxie 500In the early days of American space explorations, the world watched as the country’s eyes were fixed on the heavens. With President Kennedy’s vow to reach the moon, a goal which was realized not too long thereafter, so began America’s love affair with the idea of reaching a better understanding of the mysteries that abounded among the stars that so brilliantly twinkled in the skies above. In 1959, Ford rolled out the Galaxie, and the name of this classic car was surely appropriate for the times. The car cruised through the 1960s and into the 1970s, before coming to an end in 1974. Built in Chicago, IL and Wayne, MI, these cars reflected pride in American accomplishments of the day.

Oscar Mayer Wienermobile

Every once in a while you see something on the street that seems like it dropped in out of some kind of surreal otherworldly dimension because it simply appears out of context. When it comes to motor vehicles, if you have ever seen the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile cruising down the street or parked somewhere in your hometown you have probably had one of these moments.

You are probably familiar with the Oscar Meyer company as a maker of hotdogs and cold cuts that you see at the grocery store every week. They have been in business for a long time; the company dates all the way back to 1883 when Oscar Meyer and his brother Gottfried started selling wursts in a German section of Chicago.
